    Can I use my Disney Rewards Redemption Card at all of the Global Marketplaces during the Food and Wine Festival?

    Bonjour, Barb! Welcome back to planDisney. We're so happy you've once again chosen to be our guest as you prepare for your next magical vacation.

    The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is truly a culinary cabaret. This year, we'll have more time than ever to explore the Global Marketplaces; the festival runs from July 15th through November 20th. Bon appétit! 

    I have great news for you, Barb! You can use a Disney Rewards Redemption Card anywhere that accepts Disney Gift Cards, and the Global Marketplaces will gladly take both as you savor your way across six continents this fall. C'est magnifique! Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and watch for their "foodie guides" that are usually released as the festival commences. 

    If you'll be a Guest at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection (I like to stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Villas, or Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort for a festival-focused vacation), I recommend purchasing a MagicBand or bringing one from a previous visit to keep your hands free to hold snacks and sips as you make your way around World Showcase. You can charge Global Marketplace purchases to your resort room and pay down your balance with your Disney Rewards Redemption Card before check-out day. 

    I hope this is helpful, Barb. While you're tasting your way through my favorite theme park, don't forget to take a spin on the newest attraction on the block, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, set to open on October 1 of this year. There's so much magic and excitement on the horizon in Walt Disney World, and I'm thrilled you're going to be part of it. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and we'll see ya real soon!

    Bon voyage,
